Waiting for the 1st Annual ECB

It's 6:45 p.m. local time, which makes it 10:15 p.m. GMT, which means Ricardipus has already boarded his plane at Heathrow. According to the trusty airport website, his flight is on time, which is peculiar as it's not supposed to have taken off yet, so that's a neat trick.

Unbeknownst to him, I have a T-shirt from the local geological museum for him featuring a silk screen of trilobites, which should please him as he's one of those scientist types. I hope it's the right size. If he turns out to be 4'8", I'm in trouble. Or he has a new nightshirt.

I also have some balancing accoutrements. Not ducks. Oh no. Something more apropos to the locale. "What?" you ask in excitement, "WHAT???"

You'll just have to wait for the photos.


Update 5:00 a.m. - What a lovely, sweet man. More after I've had some sleep.

just for your information, it's not GMT here at the mo, it's bst (British Summertime).

I bet it was weird meeting in the airport at that time. It must have been deserted.

It was busy upon his arrival and busy again as his plane was about to leave but pretty darned quiet in between.

Bated, darling, bated.

kvusoo - Kvusoo? I hardly know you...

Hi there - I showed up, by the way.

Oh, you knew that already.

More details to follow... but:

a) Dawn is also lovely, and put up with my dreadful jetlag most bravely.

b) The T-shirt is this: Aces!

c) rik - not the weirdest thing I've ever done. Dunno about Dawn but I suspect not for her, either. ;)

More at my place whenever I get around to posting... some of my travel exploits may show up somewhere else as well.

Has Brussels started a fashion?

Yes, you showed up, you brave man you. And he wasn't that jetlagged, as least outwardly (although I did fear he was really thinking "Go away, crazy lady and just let me sit in peace!")

He also gave me a T-shirt AND a w00t! coffee mug from his place of employment. (hint: cool scientific place)

Not the weirdest thing I've done by a long shot, but just never you mind what was...

And yes, I do believe Brussels has started a fashion. Although jelly-filled cowbags have yet to appear in the stores, sadly.

blogmeet? BLOGMEET???


Didn't I urge you to start blogging? Was that me?

Yes, blogmeet.

Yes, yes we did.

Yes, yes you did. That was, in fact, you.

No, no you didn't.

Of course, you do realize that the next time I visit my home province, WE could have a blogmeet.
